slowly going crazy

After listening to that for about fifteen minutes, they finally had a recorded message informing that they were having technical difficulties in the area. Like… they couldn’t have put THAT message up first, right?? X.x

Aww, I wondered what happened to you. :)

I took the time to get some drawing done. Sorry for your troubles! And at least we go to see a spiffy new pic from it. :)

eep *snuggles up and rubrubs your poor, aching head* My carrier, Brighthouse Networks, at least does that, putting area difficulty messages first.

What? Put that message up first? And deprive some poor voice messaging system of a job?

You callous wolf! Next, you'll be saying you want to outsource all the repetetive, ineffectual requests to stay on the line to India!!

Ugh.

*hug* Yeah, that picture looks about how I feel after about fifteen minutes. :(

Wow. In the time you were on hold, you were able to draw that frustrated picture of yourself?

You'd think they would have one of those automated things that calculates roughly how long you have to wait.

ahh but you forget, Rogers is a big time corporation, why the heck would they care about the customer? Remember who I work for? We don't care about the customer, we just care if we're idle or not ^_^

"I want my 15 minutes of my life back!"

I will say this about Adelphia, at least that is the second message you get, after the "your call is important to us, but not important enough that we are going to hire anymore people for tech support. So, you're just going to have to deal with the 45-minute wait on the line since your time isn't valuable to us" BS.

Rogers sucks so much ass. :P

At least it was only 15 minutes. Even back when I was living with Wookiee, a wait time of 1-2 hours to get through to Rogers tech support wasn't uncommon at all.

Ah, it happens, sweetie... My net has a lovely tendency to die for random amount of time. Moomba's (Friend) has a tendency to slow down. One of my friends gets disconnected a LOT.
I'm beginning to think each Cable connection has it's own fault :-).

*scritches your back softly* C'Mon, girl. Don't let those idiots touch you.You're too beautiful for that ^-^. *hugs*

Holy mother of feck I just inhaled some weird-shaped snot I was laughing so hard! :D

Mmmm... Jessieboobies.. :D

But yeah.. Rogers is t3h ghey. My cousin upgraded to Rogers Hi-Speed Extreme. Which is pretty much as fast as a T1 line. Unfortunately this requires you to buy a hi-speed modem, which sets you back $100.. my cousin bought one, didn't work, and so he wanted to get another one and return the old non-working one right? WRONG. They had to unregister the old modem serial number off his account and register the NEW one to his account, which took all about 2 hours to do. >_<

Heh... the words "Fine, then I'll just take my business with Bell." work WONDERS.

If you'd have to deal with the university I attend, you would be glad to sit and wait for a few hours listening to a voice saying "Your call is important to us. Please hold."
They have nothing, so instead of getting a place in line, you just have to sit the whole day calling them over and over and over and over and over and over again, hoping that you have the fortune to squeeze in exactly between when one of the operators have hung up and some other caller gets before you...

My phone company is better though.
They calculate how long it'll take, and are usually right, so when they say "Please wait, your place in line is nr 2054, calculated time to wait is 5 hours and 23 minutes" I know I can go out shopping or something for at least 5 hours, and perhaps even get a shower after coming home...

Hee! Great picture, Jess!!

Well, don't feel TOO bad if it was only 15 minutes. I was once Tech Support hold with Number Nine Video Corp (old video card manufacturer) for so long that I listened to the ENTIRE soundtrack of Top Gun, before it started to repeat! At that point I did the only thing I could think of - I hung up and never bought or endorsed using a Number Nine product again. No surprise they're out of business now if they treated all their customers like they did me. :>
